LogIn Project Workshop: Amplifying underrepresented voices in formal philosophy
King’s College London, 26th April 2024
The workshop aims to bring together researchers who work on formal philosophy broadly construed who are either members of traditionally underrepresented groups or who work outside of what is perceived as "traditional’’ topics in logic and formal philosophy. It will be an occasion for dialogue between researchers who identify as members of underrepresented groups in academia and researchers who work on topics generally regarded as non-standard in the academic tradition.
Confirmed speakers include:
The workshop will be followed by a panel discussion on how to make formal academic philosophy a more inclusive environment.
We invite submissions from members of traditionally underrepresented groups of extended abstracts (up to 1000 words) for 3 contributed talks. Any abstract related to logic or formal philosophy written by researchers who are either part of traditionally underrepresented groups or working on 'non-traditional' logic and formal philosophy is welcome. We particularly encourage submissions on formal topics from a more diverse and interdisciplinary perspective, including (but not limited to):
Formal philosophy outside the Western tradition (from a historical or contemporary perspective)
Feminist logic and formal epistemology
Feminist philosophy of logic and philosophy of science
Formal methods in feminist philosophy
We particularly encourage interdisciplinary submissions. We will reimburse expenses for contributed speakers.
Anonymised abstracts should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 1st of February, 2024. Please also attach to your application a coversheet including your name, affiliation and stating whether you identify as a member of a traditionally underrepresented group. Decisions will be notified by the end of February.
